Turkish troops killed 32 Kurdish militants in clashes in Cukurca Kazan valley, in Hakkari province in southeast Turkey, state-run television TRT reported yesterday, in the third day of an offensive to avenge the deaths of 24 soldiers this week.
A total of 53 Kurdish militants have been killed so far in the operation, TRT reported without citing a source. The television channel did not provide a timeframe for the latest killings, adding that clashes continue in the area.
Turkish security officials estimated earlier in the week that their forces, numbering about 1,000 inside Iraq, had killed 21 fighters from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
